Woman, Feminist, Mother, Wife, Writer. Passionate about Easetenders, sleeping, the 90's, starting projects and not finishing them and pointed-toe stilettoes.
I grew up around tie-dye, yin yangs and the Spice Girls. I grew up in a decade where the advances in technology were so important that we couldn't imagine life today without them. Imagine living without the internet, mobile phones or PlayStations... you can't can you? Everything about those 10 years had a shiny, loud, teetering-on-the-edge kind of feeling to it. The music was loud, Liam Gallagher's vocal in Wonderwall, the violins in Bittersweet Symphony, the beat in 2Unlimiteds' No Limitz, the techno-banjo in Cotton-Eye Joe, Mariah and Whitneys massive vocal stylings, the amount of feel-good feminism packed into every Spice Girls song, all larger than life. Ladies turned into ladettes, traditionally masculine heterosexual men turned into metrosexuals, eyebrows that started the decade thick and fluffy ended as thin lines, jeans that started off high-waisted and baggy, ended up super low rise and skin tight. And I lived, laughed and loved my way through every single second of it. I can't pick one trend that I would bring back from the 90's, so here's my top 10 nostalgic feels. (all images are from Google)
